"Während der Bus den Serpentinen der Straße folgte, zeigte sich Barbara zu ihrer Linken eine atemberaubende Aussicht auf das Tal unter ihr. Das Prättigau breitete sich vor ihrem Blick aus wie ein Wildbach, der zwischen zwei Felsmassive gedrängt worden war." Nach einer schmerzhaften Trennung und dem plötzlichen Tod ihrer Großmutter Rosa fühlt sich Barbara einsam und orientierungslos. Aus Rosas Testament erfährt sie, dass sie im Bergdorf Surgens beerdigt werden will. Barbara hat noch nie von diesem Ort gehört, ihr ist eine Auszeit von ihrem Leben allerdings äußerst willkommen. Doch das raue Klima der Bündner Berge mit seinen eigenwilligen Bewohnern entpuppt sich als große Herausforderung. Kaum angekommen, stellt ein Geheimnis, dessen Wurzeln tief in die Vergangenheit zurückreichen, Barbaras Leben auf den Kopf. Der zurückhaltende Gasthausbetreiber Conradin, der sie mit seinem Charme immer mehr fasziniert, hilft ihr dabei, den verschleierten Spuren vergessener Tage zu folgen. Nach dem Erfolg von Carolin Raths "Das Erbe der Wintersteins" gibt es jetzt den nächsten fesselnden Familiengeheimnis-Roman "Das Tal der Rosen" von Ladina Bordoli bei "be".

In 1921, Paul Amadeus Dienach, a Swiss-Austrian teacher with fragile health, falls into a one-year-long coma. During this time, his consciousness slides into the future and enters the body of another man in 3906 A.D. When Dienach awakens from his coma, he finds himself back in 1922. Knowing that he doesn't have much time left, he writes a diary, recording whatever he could remember from his amazing experience: the mankind's history in the forthcoming centuries, from the nightmare of overpopulation and World Wars up until the world-changing globalisation, the radical new administration system, the colony on Mars and the next human evolutionary stage. Without any close friends and relatives to entrust, he doesn't say a word to anyone out of fear of being branded a lunatic. Before he dies, he hands his diary to his favourite student, George Papachatzis, later prominent Professor of Law and Rector of Panteion University of Greece.The diary circulates as hidden knowledge amongst high ranking masons in the lodges of Athens. In 1972, professor Papachatzis, despite an intense dispute, decides to publish Dienach's diary in Greek. Paul Dienach was not an author, poet, or professional writer. Rather, he was an ordinary man who kept a journal, never with the expectation that it would be published. This unique and controversial book, a universal legacy, is now carefully edited, translated and available to everyone. This is the history of our future! We deliver it to you."

The spectacular bestseller from the author of VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. In a time when steak, vodka, and Benzedrine were the three main staples of a healthy diet, when high-powered executives called each other “baby” and movie stars wore wigs to bed, network tycoons had a name for the TV set: they called it “the love machine.” But to supermodel Amanda, socialite Judith and journalist Maggie, “the love machine” meant something else: Robin Stone, “a TV-network titan around whom women flutter like so many moths…The novel deals with his rise and fall as he makes the international sex scene (orgying in London, transvestiting in Hamburg), drinks unlimited quantities and checks out the latest Nielsens.”—Newsweek “I READ IT IN ONE GREEDY GULP, ENJOYING EVERY MINUTE.”—Liz Smith “[Susann’s] pulp poetry resonates to this day. WITH HER FORMULA OF SEX, DRUGS, AND SHOW BUSINESS, Susann didn’t so much capture the tenor of her times as she did predict the Zeitgeist of ours.”—Detour

Thomas Bernhard was one of the most original writers of the twentieth century. His formal innovation ranks with Beckett and Kafka, his outrageously cantankerous voice recalls Dostoevsky, but his gift for lacerating, lyrical, provocative prose is incomparably his own.One of Bernhard's most acclaimed novels, The Loser centers on a fictional relationship between piano virtuoso Glenn Gould and two of his fellow students who feel compelled to renounce their musical ambitions in the face of Gould's incomparable genius. One commits suicide, while the other-- the obsessive, witty, and self-mocking narrator-- has retreated into obscurity. Written as a monologue in one remarkable unbroken paragraph, The Loser is a brilliant meditation on success, failure, genius, and fame. From the Trade Paperback edition.
